My Queen Elizabeth Grandiflora Rose is blooming--I love this rose.

Pink Peony also blooming.  I got this one from my mom many years ago.

Columbine too.

This is a white florabunda rose with mint growing amoung it.

Here's the flower bed I worked on this morning.  The little sticks are to keep the critters out of this bed until the flowers are big enough to keep them out.  I planted whisper mix Nicotiana, single mixed hollyhocks, purple nicotina, phlox-mixed, allysum, evening scented stocks, and mixed small dahlias--I think that's all.

I still have more planting to do.

This was the finch nest this morning.  Still no baby birds yet.
